Patricia Lazaro | Huwarang OFW 2017 Individual Nominee

To forgive someone who has hurt you may be difficult but God can give you the grace to be able to.

This was how God changed Patricia’s heart towards her heartaches after she has come to know Jesus.

Patricia Lazaro worked for almost 13 years as a domestic helper in Hong Kong. After retiring, she found out that her husband has had a mistress and then abandoned their family.

Bearing the pain caused by adultery, Patricia decided to go back to Hong Kong where she chanced upon watching The 700 Club Asia. In one of its shows, she prayed to accept Jesus into her heart. She felt as if the burden was lifted off of her.

After some time, Patricia heard that her husband’s mistress has passed away while her husband got cancer. She went back to release forgiveness to her husband and share the love of God with him.

Upon her husband’s passing, Patricia continued her work as an OFW. This was how she was able to send all of her children to finish school. She now owns a shoe manufacturing and retail business, proving how God has been faithful to her.

Ephesians 4:31-32 says, “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
